Clippers Heated To Bury The Bulls Along Nicolas Batum
Nicolas Batum started in Marcus’ place and scored all the season-high twenty-four points only on three-pointers. Gordon was also there who added twenty-two points going five for nine from a long range. This was his top-scoring match as well since being included in the Clippers side in last month.
Nicolas Batum said that when the team is missing players like Norm, PG and Mook, people who can score the ball, they will have to find a way to send the ball in the ring. This was the responsibility he shared today with his teammates. He said that he cannot rely only on Kawhi to take them home in every four minutes. He said that he did that in his last game.
